March's LibraryReads Favorite is: The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley A Novel
by Hannah Tinti
(The Dial Press)

“Meet Samuel Hawley, a man in a constant struggle with his violent past, doing the best he can to raise his daughter. Meet Loo, his daughter, a girl with an obscure past and an uncertain future, on the cusp of adulthood. And meet Lily, the dead woman who connects them both. In this finely woven novel, the past and the present gradually illuminate the story of a man’s life through the bullet wounds he carries with him and makes readers consider what it is to be both good and evil.” -Dawn Terrizzi, Denton Public Library, Denton, TX

Descent by Tim Johnston

The Courtland family's worst nightmare happens while on vacation when their teenage son and daughter go for a run in the mountains and their son is hit by a truck, left by the side of a remote road and the daughter is nowhere to be found. This profound event tears the family apart and affects them in different ways culminating in a most surprising conclusion of what a person is compelled to do to live at all cost and come back to family. A very good page turner!

Fever Dream by Samantha Schweblin

Unlike anything I've read before. Like a dream all of us have from time to time, it doesn't make sense but it does make sense and is disturbing but not really frightening. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. That's OK because it can easily be read in one sitting. Very different and kind of weird, but I do recommend this book.

Revolver by Duane Swierczynski

Swierczynksi's Revolver is a story about an unsolved murder mystery involving three generations of Polish Philadelphia cops, family secrets, and racism. A very good quick read.
